The headline should describe what the Articles block will entail. Think of it as a ‘title’. This is not a required field.
NOTE: You have the ability to hide the headline field if you still wish to add a descriptive title yet not have it display on the page. Think of it more as an ‘Administrative Label’ if you wish to implement it this way
You have the ability to select the font size of the Articles headline. Heading 2 is set by default, but may need to be adjusted depending on where you nest the Articles block within the page.
Default, Bold Serif and Bold serif, underlined.
Items to Display
This determines how many article teasers will be displayed in the block.
NOTE: If you want to display all related articles without a pager, enter 0
This allows you to start your articles list after a specified number of records. If you set this to 3, for example, it will skip the first 3 articles that would have been shown.
Depending on the number of results and the number of items, this will display a pager. This allows the user to view all of the related articles in a more condensed and controlled way. It also prevents the user from having to navigate to a different page.
If a pager isn’t selected, users will only see the most recent number of results and items you selected to display.
You can drag each of the following options to sort them: Sticky, Authored on. Additionally, for each item, you can choose to sort in ascending (e.g. A to Z) or descending order (e.g. Z to A). The default settings will probably work most of the time, so you probably won't need to adjust this setting.
You can choose to not display certain fields by selecting the 'Hide' checkbox next to the field name. Fields include: Photo, Posted date, Article Authors, Organization, Source Link, Article Summary.
When you create an article, you have the option to set Tags under the 'Relationships' section in the righthand sidebar. Using this text field, you can reference the tags you set for an article.
NOTE: Separate the tags with a comma
Additionally, to view existing tags, go to /admin/structure/taxonomy/manage/tags/overview
Display More Link
Check to include a ' View More' link. To use the default articles path set within SiteNow Articles, make sure the ‘Enable articles listing’ box is checked. Alternatively, a custom URL path can be provided in the ‘Path’ text box below.
You have the option to customize where a user is directed when they click on the ‘View More’ link
If you want users to be directed to a specific page on your site, start typing the page title of the desired piece of content and then select the node from the dropdown menu.
You can also enter an internal path such as /node/add or an external URL such as http://example.com. Enter <front> to link to the front page. Enter <nolink> to display link text only.
